Spotlight on Waste Not Paper!! AND EMMA JOERSZ!

Good morning! It is time for another Product Spotlight!!! We'll be looking at Waste Not Paper, a company that makes recycled card stocks and stationery products!! Our featured designer, I am excited to say, is my neighbor and close friend Emma Joersz! Emma is a stay-at-home mommy to her two boys, Colton and Beckett, who happen to be my two kiddos' best buddies! Emma is QUITE a talented artist, and can do anything from painting pottery to scrapbooking to photography to graphic design! In fact, Emma was the designer of out Limelight Papercrafts logo and other business designs.

We will be carrying Waste Not Paper products in the store. WNP is transitioning all of their card stocks to be recycled. We will be carrying only their recycled colors. The 8 1/2 x 11 card stock colors we will offer are White (FYI- this is not a bright white. It is more of a soft white...), Strawberry, Cement, Poppy, Pool, Moss, Chartreuse, and Chocolate. Also available will be 5 3/4" square envelopes in white and A2 envelopes in White and Chocolate. We will also be carrying the 5 1/2" circle cards and 5 1/8" scalloped circle cards (single die cut card, not folded) in Chocolate, Pool, and White. You can see my card created using these products here. I used two pieces of the Chocolate circles and one piece of the Pool circle to make this card. I am excited to say that in addition to all of these great recycled products, we'll be carrying Takeout Boxes and Pyramid Boxes in white!! These come pre-scored and ready to stamp/embellish and fill with goodies! Check back here tomorrow for more Limelight Loot! We'll be giving away some Waste Not Paper goodies!!! (And some other fun stuff, too!)

Here is Emma's scrapbook page of her son Beckett using Waste Not Paper Chocolate Scalloped Circles! I love how she cut the circles to create such an interesting design on her page. The Stickles were a nice touch, too! Note the super-cool fonts..Emma DREW all of that herself! Oh, and look at that ADORABLE baby!! :) Hi baby Beckett!
